About Us

A bed between adventures. 

Meet The Team


Lactose intolerant. My house plants need health insurance. Probably eating a popsicle. When I’m bored I do board sports. Born in the East coast, asked not to come back. Collector of rocks. Avid cloud watcher. Roly polies like me. Birds aren't real. Let me grill something for you.


Hi I'm Jess and I was born and raised in the lovely state of Colorado! I found my way to the Wanderlust Hostel after graduating with a degree in Biology from Western Colorado University. My days are filled with mountain bike rides and fueled by peanut butter on bananas or honey on pizza crust. When I'm not at the hostel I can be found counting ants and aphids at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Crested Butte ... it sounds nerdy because it is :) 


Hi, my name is Olivia. Aside from being a recent History graduate from Western- the University local to Gunnison-, I do many things. I eat mac and cheese; sometimes this mac and cheese has chicken, sometimes the mac and cheese is made from a box, sometimes it is baked; sometimes the noodles are shaped in a exciting way…ultimately, I’ll eat anything with bread and cheese. I partake in as many activities as I can stuff into my day. I run, I climb, I walk, I frolick, I squat. My dream careers are migratory beekeeper, chimney sweeper, or lottery winner. I’d like to think I can do a mean Cher impersonation, but everyone else that has ever existed tends to disagree. I am beyond excited to be living here at the Wanderlust and to  meet all of you, our beautiful guests. And yes, I will eat your leftovers.
